There’s nothing like a great Mexican Red Rice on your plate when you’re having Taco Tuesday or any other Mexican or Southwestern dinner. There’s a reason so many of us at home either skip it altogether or turn to a mix – after all, why put effort into a dish that even at restaurants is sometimes lackluster and gets picked at or pushed aside. This Instant Pot Mexican Red Rice is going to rock your world – or at least get you some fab Mexican Red Rice on the table!
I’m pretty wild about my Quick Corn & Bell Pepper Maque Choux, and I hope you’ll be, too. It’s got to be the perfect end of summer dish; a great transition into the heavier, comfort foods of fall.
No longer are tiny potatoes something you might have to search out, buy at a special store, or luck out to find. These days the diminutive baby or new potatoes seem to be everywhere! There’s still special, though, so it’s a great idea to give them a little respect and cook them to bring all their delicate flavor forward. I love to make these Oven Roasted Tiny Potatoes.
I’m a huge fan of rice pilaf, especially ones with wild rice in them. Now, I might be able to claim that’s coz I’m from Minnesota, you betcha, which for decades was the bastion of wild rice. Truth be told, it’s because I’m a child of the 1960s and wild rice pilaf was served at so many restaurants, especially with kebabs which became wildly popular around that time period. Now I make Instant Pot Wild Rice Pilaf and it’s a game-changer.
